Well worth visiting. Driving not for the feint to heart, but the sheer beauty of the place will keep you going, On a clear day one can see all of Donegal Bay, and across it as far as Benbulben (Mtn) in Co. Sligo.

Went here walking and it is like a hidden gem, quiet and has good road access, lovely to just sit or walk and listen to the wildlife, beautiful views.

We spent a few hours driving around and hiking this area...it was stunning! It is a bit out of the way, but worth the trip.

Amazing to walk around, lay in the grass, swim, rock climb! The geology is impressive and if you are someone who appreciates the small wonders of the Earth it is a lovely place to spend a restful but playful chill day.

The best in the area in our opinion. Hush don't tell everyone. Usually very quiet and safe with the kids. Nice walk to see the crashing waves as well.

Visited Muckross Head Peninsula with partner and dogs on a crisp, cold January day and would highly recommend. Views are spectacular. Lovely walk. I would imagine sunsets in summer would be amazing! I will return for sure.
